NIMCON 8 News
Planning in Progress
We have locked in the date of June 22, 2019 for NIMCON 8. As we continue planning and preparations, this page will be updated with news about the show.
Update from March 7:
LRSM is proud to announce that we will sponsor a special award at NIMCON8 in memorial to Larry Johnson, a long time member and friend to many. Larry was very creative and had the most incredible imagination. In his honor, we will present the Larry Johnson memorial award for the most imaginative exhibit. All exhibits in all categories will be considered for this award. We will have a team of folks who were closest to Larry pick the exhibit that they think would have most inspired his imagination.
Update from February 15:
Forms for trophy sponsorship, registration, and vendor reservations have been finalized and are now posted.
Note on categories: We have broken the figure category into Historical and Non-Historical. This split recognizes exhibitors desire to separate horror and fantasy subjects from the figures based on real historical subjects and allows for best of awards for each type of subject.
The judging criteria has been simplified for NIMCON 8 and has been posted for those who are interesting in review the criteria we use for judging exhibits.
We are reaching out to find presenters for seminars again this year. We will update the news as we continue to search for potential presenters and interesting subjects.
